12/08/2014 - So, some kind of throat thing has me in it's grasp. Cannot do more than two lines without coughing or getting a tickle in my throat, AND my head is so stopped up I couldn't hear it anyway to try to sing. Been hittin' the Nyquil all weekend, so should be gone in another day or two (I hope!)
I never set out to become a "singer", but alone in my room in the 60s, I would sing along to 45s and pretend it was me on the record. Later on in the 70's (til now), driving in my car I would take the 'long way home' so I could sing along to my fav songs on the radio. But, that's all it ever was... I've never sang in public, never sang in front of anyone, I'm still alone in my room pretending to be a singer, only now I can hear what it actually sounds like LOL. THIS would also explain why most of my songs are just a 'little off' from the originals, because I am singing them as I remember them, if that makes sense. Only if it's one I haven't heard before will I try to find it on youtube or somewhere. Thank you for visiting, and sign my guestbook!! (if I have one????) LOL
PS - I AM THE ABSOLUTE WORST ON LEAVING COMMENTS! IT DOESN'T MEAN I DON'T LISTEN, I'M JUST LAZY ACTUALLY... That, plus even though I never log off (so it looks like I'm always here), I actually only find a little time during my lunchbreak to sing (gives me about 20 minutes to find, record, save, listen), and I try to sneak in another hour during the week, BUT, I AM GOING TO WORK ON THIS ISSUE (New Year's resolution maybe?) SO BEAR WITH ME IF YOU WANT.
ALSO... I make videos, of me singing. I don't dance around, don't wear makeup or costumes, and have no desire to be a "director/producer". I just sing. (okay, my "Man of Constant Sorrow" video is a tad crazy, but that's it!

Other than singing along with the radio or whatever, I just started to sing/record stuff in February of 2009, and decided I kinda liked it, creativity-wise. Still learning of course, but there is quite a difference between those first recordings in Feb. and the recordings I'm making now (I "think" for the better I mean LOL I'll tell ya more about me after the song list that follows:
This list, is comprised of the duets I did with singsnapper MLP (horn player AND singer extraordinaire).. hope you enjoy.
Okay.. back to my info...
I also like to fish, golf, camp, (anything outdoors really). I do some rollerblading, bowl, I'm an excellent cook/baker, a not so excellent guitar player (but I try), and a hopeless (and I DO mean hopeless) romantic. I'm single mostly...sorta... I've been living for most of 10 years with a sweet gal named Melissa, but we're still making up our minds on each other, so... don't wanna rush into anything, ya know.... So, I say single because I'm not technically/legally married or promised to anyone LOL anyway, back to the music..... please
This is a cherished banner.... (and you'll notice there aren't to many on here!!) Thank you fellow Okies for this. I am honored and humbled by the multitude of talent from this state!! This is the song I turned in As She's Walking Away (by djp5050 and djp5050 LOL)
Here are the songs I entered for an 8 week contest, in order (week 8 was final week, I did take second LOL)
